Abstract

SJS is a rare mucocutaneous syndrome characterized by skin and mucous detachment. The main etiological factors are drugs and infections; sometimes the cause remains unknown. In the prodromal phase we observed non-specific symptoms, followed by mucocutaneous manifestation. Due to risk of complications and mortality a multidisciplinary approach is needed. We present a case of a girl with an atypical presentation of SJS related to Enterovirus.
